     The summer months continue to be slow at the complete review, with traffic flat in July.
     Yet again, several new reviews did well, led by the forthcoming Michel Houellebecq -- which might have some staying power, since it hasn't even been released in the US or UK yet.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, and 2014 lists.
